Carmel Javier, MA, CMT (Sacramento, CA)
Carmel is a gentle and kind soul dedicated to creating a safe space for you to heal. Prior to her journey into bodywork, Carmel completed a Master’s in Religious Studies which explored various religious traditions and spiritualities. Soon after completion, she felt called to do massage therapy. She was especially interested in how trauma can manifest in our body and was especially drawn to Upledger CranioSacral therapy and SomatoEmotional Release. Carmel has now been practicing as a massage therapist for 10 years and has been volunteering at the local VA’s Women’s Clinic to help women with PTSD for over 4 years.
